… was Buttercup; and that finally, in a brilliant series for the Young Adult, and even me, picky-icky (questionable, you might say), was the undoing. I never knew when the tears crept out, and my breath caught. There were many adjectives that I have been going through to describe that experience, of having read those books: searing, singeing, hurting, all the while knowing myself to be strangely vulnerable to an assault of emotions.
It’s the thing about getting back to reading after an absolute aeon. 🙂 Don’t ask me why I picked that, that story to read, but soon enough (a few tiny pages on the mobile reading app really 😛 ) I was hooked by the fantasy, the easy reading, the characters, and a connect; a strange connect indeed, at the end of the third book of the trilogy. It has been the fastest I’ve devoured books, and that too in the middle of endless scripting and practising and sheer exhaustion due to the annual day functions at school. My reading app on the mobile (yes yes yes, I read on a darned mobile- now you know how starved for reading I was and how intrigued this story kept me!! 😀 ) kept motivating by endless stats and awards! 😀
The books as always, beat the movies hands down; even so, I’m looking forward to how the third part is conceptualized. I suppose you’ve realized which trilogy by now, if you’re the kind of reader who notices the categories and tags. If not, I’m sure you’ll tell me 😀

The epub files, and the reading app were recommended by a former student 🙂 Rasheen, thank you so very much! I’m now on ‘Northern Lights’, to be followed by the GoT. 😀 😀
